Kanye West is an American rapper, record producer, and fashion designer.
Born in Atlanta and raised in Chicago, West gained recognition as a producer for Roc-A-Fella Records in the early 2000s, producing singles for several artists and developing the “chipmunk soul” sampling style.
Intent on pursuing a solo career as a rapper, he released his debut studio album, The College Dropout (2004), to critical and commercial success and subsequently founded the record label GOOD Music.
He is widely regarded as one of the most influential hip-hop musicians of all time, and one of the most critically acclaimed artists of his generation.
Kanye has been in the news lately following usual rants about his Kim Kardashian, Pete Davidson, and others. However, the latest news is that the rapper has been suspended from Instagram.
